Humor has a liberal bias

So conservatives are going to try to put together a right-leaning Daily Show. Yeah, that'll work:

This McSweeney's piece on why there aren't many right-wind observational comedians is instructive:
The other night my wife and I are watching Hannity & Colmes, and she goes, "I'm cold—let's turn up the heat." So I say, "Just put on a sweater." And she gives me this look that's like, No missionary sex in the marital interest of procreation for you! And I'm thinking, "Man, if only the pansy liberals let the military flex a little more muscle in the Middle East and force an effective European coalition, we might be able to dissolve the OPEC terrorists, gain some leverage over oil prices, and avert domestic crises like this." The fellas know what I mean!

My wife complains like it's her job. About out-of-control government spending and affirmative action. And I totally agree with her. She's a spokeswoman for Rick Santorum.

Whose Balls Are They Anyway?

Easily the best episode of "Whose Line" ever breaks out after a skit suggestion concerning Bill Cosby and Adolf Hitler as roommates is unfairly nixed by producers.

"Mr. Fucking Belding Just Told Me To Shut The Fuck Up, Man!"

Belding. Romo. Concert. Journey.

We live in amazing times.

Yes, I vote for this to replace the "Electric Slide"

This surprised me midway through, turning into something awesome.

This is one of the most romantic things I have ever seen. I wish them a wonderful life together. Seriously.

Failure to launch

Astronauts can be crazy bitches, too:
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — An astronaut drove from Houston to Florida, donned a disguise and confronted a woman she believed was romantically involved with a space shuttle pilot she was in love with, police said. She was charged with attempted kidnapping and other counts.
U.S. Navy Capt. Lisa Nowak, 43, who flew last July on a shuttle mission to the international space station, was also charged with attempted vehicle burglary with battery, destruction of evidence and battery. She was denied bail.
Police said Nowak drove from her home in Houston to the Orlando International Airport — wearing diapers so she wouldn’t have to stop to urinate — to confront Colleen Shipman.
Nowak believed Shipman was romantically involved with Navy Cmdr. William Oefelein, a pilot during space shuttle Discovery’s trip to the space station last December, police said.
Nowak told police that her relationship with Oefelein was “more than a working relationship but less than a romantic relationship,” according to an arrest affidavit. Police officers recovered a love letter to Oefelein in her car.
NASA spokesman James Hartsfield in Houston said that, as of Monday, Nowak’s status with the astronaut corps remained unchanged.
“What will happen beyond that, I will not speculate,” he said.
Hartsfield said he couldn’t recall the last time an astronaut was arrested and said there were no rules against fraternizing among astronauts.
When she found out that Shipman was flying to Orlando from Houston, Nowak decided to confront her, according to the arrest affidavit. Nowak drove the 900-mile trip from Houston to Orlando wearing diapers, police said.
Astronauts wear diapers during launch and re-entry.
Dressed in a wig and a trench coat, Nowak boarded an airport bus that Shipman took to her car in an airport parking lot. Shipman told police she noticed someone following her, hurried inside the car and locked the doors, according to the arrest affidavit.
Nowak rapped on the window, tried to open the car door and asked for a ride. Shipman refused but rolled down the car window a few inches when Nowak started crying. Nowak then sprayed a chemical into Shipman’s car, the affidavit said.
Shipman drove to the parking lot booth, and the police were called.

Gentlemen, start your Leno.

Ninja Turtles III? Yes, it did suck


Things that piss Shredder off

I love everything about this. Ninja Turtles footage, and the one-hit wonder "Funk That!" The first part with the flyers: very well done.

Because no one else on the Internet seems to have documented it, I just want to note that I know Ernie Anastos farted during the Fox 5 newscast a couple nights ago. And I have the video saved.

The Retarded

Thank God I live in New York, where people know how to cope with humorous events.

The ring is the thing

I just found this feature to be one of the more interesting bits of filler in the too-long period before the Super Bowl.
